Gardens

Macao is a green community with tree-lined roads and flower gardens everywhere. You can find a Suzhou-inspired garden, while others are beautifully cobbled and imbued with Southern European characteristics. There are educational country parks, and some even house a zoo or cable cars from the hill! Visitors can stroll in parks throughout the length and breadth of Macao and the islands, happy in the knowledge that these green lungs are constantly nourished and cared for.
